Stay at home this weekend
With the weather set to be good this bank holiday weekend, the Council is urging people to stay home and stay safe, no matter how tempting it may be to go outside.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Teresa O’Neill OBE said: “The government guidelines are clear – stay home, protect the NHS, save lives. We are lucky in Bexley to have some amazing parks and gardens. For the first time ever I am asking you not to use them. If you have nowhere else to take your daily exercise please do not drive to our parks but instead use a park local to you. If our park car parks are overused this weekend we will close them to reduce the risk to visitors.”
“If the parks are overused and social distancing is not possible, then we will have no choice but to close them to keep people safe. Please listen to the experts and stay home.”
Bexley’s Coronavirus helpline will be open over the bank holiday weekend to support residents who are without their usual support networks during the pandemic. Please call if you need someone to get shopping, pick up other essentials, or to give you information, guidance and advice.
The helpline will be open from 8am to 8pm. The number to call is 020 3045 5398. If you prefer, you can apply for help online.
